    All published within the last 12 months. George Plimpton is spinning.

    The 11th edition includes over 225,000 definitions, and over 165,000 entries.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Tiger Woods starting a new newspaper.

    Uh, published just before the great sports editor's death in 1964, two years *before* Plimpton's.

    My publisher once vetoed my title for one of my books and substituted his own, which he was so certain was so much better. The problem? The tool never googled it. One month before my book came out, another book on the same subject, with the same title.

    It killed them both.

    He didn't consult you on the "substituted" title?
